Rick Pitino Responds


A couple of weeks ago Drew posted a 1995 letter from a Louisville doctor to then-Kentucky head coach Rick Pitino criticizing his nutritional treatment of Walter McCarty, a letter to which Pitino responded less than graciously. Last week, another missive to Pitino — this one from a UK fan in Alabama — came to light, along with Pitno’s similarly harsh comments.

Since KSR published these two letters, we’ve been inundated with people who’ve had mail returned to them by Pitino — and it would certainly seem the former Cats coach has a habit of responding to his mail. Here then, published without comment, are a few of those letters of which we’ve received copies.

    What, no former girlfriends writing to Rick and asking for their continued silence? This could be a regular feature here on KSR.

    Who knew Pitino’s handwriting looked like that of an 8th grade left-hander.

    Tomlin can be a little hit or miss, but this post is a home run. Bravo.
